When I try to set formatting to (###) ###-#### for a textbox, it still returns an unformatted string.

I would appreciate it, if you could let me know how I can set the formatting for telephone number in the report textbox.

I guess this should solve your problem.
String.Format(”{0:(###) ###-####}”, 18005551212);

Thanks for the reply Sony. When I try to set the fomat property like you suggested, it returns the unformatted string. Also in the Value type my options are either numeric or date time. I am dealing with a string in a field called Phone and when I set the property to string.format("{0: (###) ###-####}",fields.Phone), I get my setting returned verbatim.

Hi Rekha,

Custom numeric formats are applicable only for numeric data so you cannot use them to format a string. To achieve the expected result you can use a user defined function and format the value with the help of the string methods.

I've had success with this:

Format("{0:(###) ###-####}", CDbl(Fields.PrimaryContact.PhoneNumber)

In the format field, select custom format, enter: (000) 000-0000
In the value field, enter CDbl(Fields.PhoneNumber)
